Girl shot in head outside northwest Miami-Dade home

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – The mother of an 8-year-old girl who died last week after being shot in the head is honoring her daughter's birthday Tuesday by attempting to raise a reward amount being offered for information that leads to the arrest of the girl's killer.

"It's my baby's birthday," Dominique Brown wrote on a GoFundMe page. "It's day 8 and still no arrest! Everybody keeps asking what they can do. Well, I need EVERYBODY'S help now! HELP ME DOUBLE THE REWARD! I know at $50,000 somebody will TALK! My baby deserves justice and for her birthday let's give her that!"

"I just feel like if we can double this reward then we can get some answers. I just need answers for my baby," Brown told Local 10 News.

Page was shot in the head Aug. 28 while standing outside a home on Northwest 25th Avenue. Her father, James Page, 32, was shot multiple times in the upper torso and remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Relatives said Page, a fourth-grader at Sea Castle Elementary in Miramar, was getting ready to go to the movies when she was shot. 

No arrests have been made.

"It's like I have to bury her and celebrate her birthday in the same week. She was looking forward to her birthday," Brown said. "So we're just trying to celebrate her and let her know that Mommy loves you."

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
